“We believe that travel should contribute just as much to the wellbeing of the traveller, as it does to the people and places they visit.”


Co-founded by Fuchsia Claire Sims and Nigel Malone, Adventure Junky aims to influence the future of travel: 

  • through the Adventure Junky App's readily-accessible sustainable travel experiences; 
  • by creating tangible solutions to the most pressing problems arising from tourism, through both awareness, education and offsetting programs.  


  • Seek out tour operators, accomodation, carriers with strong environmental and social credentials, there’s plenty on the Adventure Junk App.
  • Try to fly less, instead travel by train or human power, when you absolutely have to fly ensure you are offset ample emissions for your travel.
  • Remember your ability to travel freely and widely is a privilege, not a right. Travel is out of reach for a large percentage of the world’s population. 
  • Eat, shop, and live like a local to ensure your money stays in the community and your experience is authentic.
  • Carry a reusable water bottle. Avoid single-use plastics, not every country has the waste and recycling infrastructure that you do back home.
  • Become carbon-conscious. Seek to understand your carbon footprint. For every metric ton of carbon dioxide released into the air, three square meters of Arctic sea ice disappear.
  • Carbon offsetting is only part of the answer to solving the climate crisis. Lifestyle choices, including flying a lot less, are equally important.
  • Look for ways to give back, travel should be a win-win and improve the wellbeing of the people and places you visit, just as much as your own.
  • Look for adventures that are a little close to home, or those you can travel to by train, electric or human power.
  • Be an animal-friendly traveller. If you can ride, hug or have a selfie with a wild animal, then don’t do it. Animals are not entertainers.
  • Travel off season, avoid the crowds and popular sights. Wander where the WiFi is weak, guaranteed you’ll make a deeper connection.
  • Stay in the moment, rather than trying to capture it for Instagram. Plus more people die from selfies than shark attacks.
